Mercedes-Benz, which brought its luxury features to the world of electric vehicles with the EQS flagship car, is now a more desirable but more economical option than EQE. For those who like the Mercedes electric sedan but can't afford it, the German automaker has a new option that could be an ideal choice.
" Mercedes-Benz unveiled EQE in recent days. A car that is a slightly smaller sedan on the same platform and will undoubtedly be cheaper than the previous model when it launches next year. The company has not yet offered a price.
The EQU electric vehicle was introduced at the 2021 IAA Mobility Conference, along with several other electrical appliances. EQB compact chassis, AMG performance car and Maybach versions of EQS and G-Wagen which is an electric concept car.
While the EQE is about 9cm shorter than the EQS, it has many of the same features as the company's flagship electric sedan, and as announced by Mercedes-Benz In fact, it is considered a continuation of the good EQS gene.
Although some of the features of the standard EQS are not found in the standard EQE vehicle. For example, the large "Hyperscreen" display will be available on the dashboard but will only be added to the car selectively.
The rear axle steering wheel is also available as an option. In the standard EQS, the steering wheel covers the rear axle up to 4.5 degrees as standard, which can be optionally upgraded to 10 degrees. The EQE will also receive software updates online. Charging will be convenient. However, this figure is based on the European standard WLTP and therefore in practice will probably be lower.
The EQE electric car has significantly less power, from 516 hp in the EQS to just 288 hp. According to Mercedes-Benz, a second version of EQE will be available when the car launches, but it remains to be seen whether we will have to wait for more features. The inclusion of internal combustion engines has made it clear that the EQE's internal cabin is clearly larger than other E-Class cars. Thus, the height of the room for the front people has been increased by 2.5 cm and the internal length of the car has been increased by 7.6 cm. The built-in cab on the battery pack also means that the EQE offers a higher position and better road visibility.
EQS is now considered a strong competitor to the Tesla Model S Plaid electric vehicle. , But EQE has tried as much as possible to offer a more economical vehicle and closer to the high-end electric vehicles of Mercedes-Benz.
As long as the company continues this trend, EQE could be a better option in the market than some recent efforts by Mercedes-Benz. For example, in the case of the EQC, which was built on the platform of a combustion engine vehicle instead of an all-electric platform, many steps were taken to synchronize it. The use of the all-electric platform was one of the goals introduced in 2019 with Vision EQS. "After EQS, the EQE now The second model in our platform is for luxury and first-class electric vehicles. This speed of innovation demonstrates the benefits of scalable architecture. With this new car, we were able to quickly provide advanced EQS features to a wider range of buyers.

one Another big goal of Mercedes-Benz with EQS Vision in 2019 was sustainable development, and EQE supports some of these ambitions. According to the company, the car's structural shell is made of recycled steel, and many of its internal components, including cable ducts, are made from recycled and renewable materials. Cobalt also makes up less than 10 percent of car battery chemicals, according to the company. However, it is unlikely to increase EQE sales, and the company needs to convince buyers that sedans still have their place, and that the E-Class electric is worth as much as its previous years' wages over gasoline models.
